The Dutch governments proposals to deport as many as 26,000 failed asylum seekers, which would violate international standards, signal a serious departure from the Netherlands historic role as a leader in human rights protection in Europe, Human Rights Watch said in a letter to Dutch Immigration Minister Rita Verdonk. The failed asylum seekers including children would be deported over the next three years...

|Audio Dependent - Teatime EP - [1013AD] - Audio Dependent|
Audio Dependent releases Teatime EP: Four tracks of highly addictive minimal- electro- progressive- techno...err... keep reading, let me explain: "After Me", the opening track progresses slowly with its highs and some glitchy sounds in unspectacular, if not random arrangement.

|Pink Stainless Tail - Lucy Leave [leda031] - Pink Stainless Tail|
Voila! La fameuse album! Our meagre tribute to the unmitigated genius of Syd Barrett, the most important force in 20th century music bar none. His rendition of this tune remains unissued legitimately, so this is a previously suppressed full length version of our take (see www.pinkstainless.net for details). Now you get the song as well as the backwardsness and horse noises, but whether that rates as an improvement depends on if you have ears or not...
